DIY Outdoor Garden Chandelier Round-up

I am eager to get home (on a red-eye flight tonight) and back to some projects and normal life. I have a patio project going on that should be nearing completion this week.  Once finished, I am excited to start adding features — like a beautiful garden chandelier. I have lots of great, inexpensive, DIY options that I have rounded up for your inspiration and my own.  My personal favorite for my particular project is the beaded dollar store option, what is yours?

    This past weekend it was so hot most of the candles melted over on themselves and fell to the table.
    I have clusters of tillandsias ( air plants) ties to the chandelier . Thank goodness they didn’t fall into the pile of warm melted wax below.

Window Art for Short Winter Days

Artist Damien Weighill has inspired me to kick up my holiday (and post holiday) decor.  Using liquid chalk markers he created this easy to remove art.  He says he has to credit the wind for the fact that the snowman looks like he’s just been on a rampage kicking over chairs in the neighbor’s garden….
